(GermanPolicy.com) – SPD co-president Walter-Borjans has spoken out in favor of putting the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline into operation. It is about an infrastructure that will help make the Federal Republic of Germany climate neutral, he explained. Greens co-chairman Baerbock is against an operating permit for the pipeline.
The Federal Network Agency will decide on the operation of the gas pipeline by January 8th. Following this this, the EU Commission is supposed to issue an opinion as to whether certification does not endanger the EU’s gas supply. Nord Stream 2 is expected to deliver up to 55 billion cubic meters of natural gas per year.
